Mollie Simmons conquered a challenging field in the 50-yard freestyle while the Lancers won six other events, including two of the three relays.

Simmons, a junior, outdueled teammate Carley Vaccher and JSerra’s Katie Glavinovich to touch first in the 50 with a time of 24.46 seconds, just six one-hundredths of a second off the automatic CIF Division 1 qualifying standard.

Vaccher (24.86) and Glavinovich (24.99) also broke 25 seconds in placing second and third, respectively.

Simmons also won the backstroke in 1:04.59 and anchored the Lancers’ winning 200 medley relay (1:56.35).

Vaccher claimed the 100 freestyle in 54.29.

The Lancers racked up 701 points to outdistance runner-up JSerra at 485.

Glavinovich won the 200 individual medley in a 2:06.16, an automatic Division 1 qualifying time.
